Product description

Review

"This first collaboration between bestselling romance writer Crusie and adventure-thriller writer Mayer is a rare delight. Mayer's delectably dry sense of humor perfectly complements Crusie's brand of sharp wit, and together the two have cooked up a sexy, sassy, and smart combination of romance and suspense that is simply irresistible."--"Booklist""" "Bless the day that Crusie and Mayer sat down to chat, for this collaboration is inspired!"--"Romantic Times""BOOKreviews "(Top Pick) "Noted romance/chick-lit author Crusie ("Bet Me") and adventure author Mayer ("Z: A Dave Reilly Novel") team up [and] the writing is seamless." --"Library Journal"
" "
"The two writers/two viewpoints style lends itself to humor, and the authors don't stint on fast-paced action and complication."--"Tampa"" Tribune"

"It's light; it's witty; it's a page-turner. It's romantic, in a he-man/she-modern-woman manner."
--"The State" (South Carolina)

"Combines wit, romance, and movie-quality action in one fast-paced book."--"News and Sentinel "(Parkesburg, WV)

"Plenty of big guns, helicopters and light repartee all in good fun. Readers will be happy to get a bit damp."--"Publishers Weekly"""

"Think Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie "True Lies"."--"Georgia Library Quarterly"

Synopsis

Recruited to finish a four-day action movie shoot, commercial director Lucy Armstrong finds the job challenged by egomaniacal actors, her stunt director ex-husband, and a would-be killer.

I love Crusie's book's. "Welcome to Temptation" is her best in my opinion. I'm afraid that I've never read anything by Mayer before. I have to agree with the other reviewers', this book definately lacked something that Crusie's other books have.

The 'all action hero' scenes were good and fast paced (presumably Mayer?). However, in between the pace was slow, dragged slightly and lacked Crusie's usual fast paced wit. We know after reading part of the book that the action and double crosses will happen on the last day of the film shoot and I just wanted it to hurry up and get on with it.

It was funny in places, but I agree that the plot was far too convoluted with too many bad guys coming out of the woodwork. If the idea of this partnership was to create a book aimed at both men and women, then I don't think it has worked. I prefer

Crusie by herself.

I love Jennifer Cruisie and was looking forward to this new book, although I admit I have never heard of Bob Mayer.

It's hard to write a bad review for JC but this was an average story. Of course, there was her usual style of witty dialogue and alpha heros but I found it was a little disjointed in places. In particular the time-line was hard to follow, with little reference made to day or night, there was no flow.

I wonder if a second read would help me understand the full story better as the twists at the end just kept coming and, in my opinion, didnt add to the book in any way. I think my main problem with the book is that the plot was a bit vague in some areas and too convoluted in others.

I did like the characters though, and thought the romance between Lucy and JT was nicely done - although we never did find out what the JT stood for!

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Crusie but this book was not up to her usual standard. I have to agree with the other reviewer the plot didn't seem to make much sense but the characters were the biggest disappointment, it was hard to feel that you really knew or sympathised with them unlike her other books. I love all her other books but the very best are Welcome to Temptation and Faking It. Try those and you'll be hooked.

As a big Crusie fan, and having followed the blog by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer, I was looking forward to reading this. However, I found it thin when compared with Crusie's solo efforts, the pacing was staccato and there were two bloopers that hauled me out of the story with a big yank (one a factual mish-mash, the other a typo).

Nonetheless, the story is a good way to while away time, and the characters are reasonably engaging. By no means vintage Crusie, but on the other hand, a little Crusie is better than none at all and we must all thank Bob Mayer for helping her out of her creative stall.

I so very much adored Agnes and the Hitman, that I felt I couldn't go wrong. I disregarded the reviews and now I am kicking myself.

This was so obviously this teams first book together. It didn't have that wonderful 'glide' from author to author like they do in 'Agnes". You know what I mean - when you can't tell one author from the other, you can't tell who is writing what. Bob and Jennifer make a wonderful team with Agnes.

THIS book actually put me to sleep while I was reading this, none of the action scenes were not pulse pounding, although I don't really expect that with these books, they are action books yes, but they are predominantly romances. However, with this book I just wanted to skip over the action, even the action in the last few chapters just so I could see just who one particular character was.

I should have known that this wasn't going to be goo when I couldn't beleive most of what I was reading. I know it is fiction and you have to suspend your disbelief---but with this book I would have had to suspend it to a point that I just could do.

I'm going to try the next Meyers/Crusie book, I just cannot beleive that it will be as bad as this one - I hope it will be as good as Agnes and the Hitman, but we'll see.

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Crusie and have read loads of her books. This one was a big disappointment - as I read it I thought it would get better as I read on but it didn't. It lacked the normal characteristics of her books - chemistry, romance and a bit of mystery/suspense. I think she should stick to writing on her own.

I have to agree with other reviewers. This book was disappointing. I didn't like the characters, they had potential that never developed. I thought the plot was disjointed and confusing. By the end I really didn't care about any of them. I was so sick of the 'alpha' male thinking 'get out of the kill zone' I was ready to kill him myself. I normally LOVE Jennifer Crusie's books, but I had to rate this one a one star read.
